Episode Narrative Although much of Oklahoma reported above average rainfall totals, northwest Oklahoma remained dry. As a result, D2 drought set in over a small area of Harper and Ellis counties. The wheat harvest was minimal, and some farmers were forced to sell off their cattle. The drought caused Gov. Brad Henry today send a letter to U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Ed Schafer requesting disaster assistance for farmers and ranchers. Luckily in this area, the rains returned, albeit a little late, to northwest Oklahoma, prompting officials to lower the drought monitor to D1 and then D0. Monetary damages were estimated.
Event Narrative Monetary damages were estimated.
